Treven Anspach Memorial Fund Information
10/12/15 - Oregon State Fire Fighters Council
Treven Taylor Anspach spent his life protecting and defending those who could not. This courage was evident on October 1, 2015 when – after being mortally wounded by gunfire during the Umpqua Community College shooting – he still saved a life, throwing himself on a classmate and shielding her from the attacker. This brave action saved a young lady’s life as the gunman passed over both bodies. Born on September 15, 1995, in Roseburg Oregon, Treven Anspach lived his entire life in Sutherlin. He attended Sutherlin schools from kindergarten through high school. He was a hard worker and was very family oriented. While in high school, Treven was a two sport star in basketball and soccer, winning letters for both in all four years. His leadership qualities were apparent, as he was named team captain for both squads as a senior, a year which saw him selected as a first team Far West Basketball and Far West Soccer honorable mention. He was on the 2013 Sutherlin High School basketball team that participated in the state tournament and selected to participate in the 2A, 3A, 4A, OACA All-Star Basketball Series. And for good measure, Treven showed that he also had the smarts to go along with the athleticism, also being recognized as an academic all-star. After high school, Treven enrolled at UCC to further his education and follow in the footsteps of his father by becoming a fire fighter/paramedic. He had a hard time getting scholarships, but this did not deter Treven. Like all other obstacles, he faced it head on. He worked harder, got a job and was working to put himself through college. Treven Anspach never quit. Despite obstacles, he always found a way to achieve his goals. And in honor of the fight and courage that Treven displayed, even in the face of death, the Treven Anspach Memorial Scholarship Fund has been established to reward those who display the “never quit” attitude Treven was known for. If you would prefer to mail your donation or send other correspondence, please use the following address: Treven's Fund P.O. Box 1046 Roseburg OR, 97470

Operation Warm is in Full Swing
10/08/15 - IAFF 7th District
Has your Local adopted the project "Operation Warm" otherwise known as "coats for kids"? If not, you are missing out on an opportunity to make the lives of many better. Not only for the children in need of the warmth and caring a new coat brings but to enrich the lives of those actually building the garment. That is right, when you purchase a coat from Operation Warm, you are supporting Union workers assembling the garments as well American businesses that are making the materials.....yep, 100% made in America garments by UNION workers! Local 1052 member Travis Leonard gets it and see his video at for his take on the project. He has raised funds, engaged with teachers, bought coats and then coordinated giving them to children which as enriched the lives of all he engaged with. This is a worthy project so get on board. Please email Laura Wisneski at to find out how you can make a difference!
